Honors Program

Reach for the Stars!


Mary RooneyWelcome to the SUNY Cobleskill Honors Program! Our program is a small but impressive group of 25 students from most of SUNY Cobleskill's academic majors. It is a pleasure to work with this talented group of students and watch our program grow into one of the most scholastically rewarding programs on campus. Please contact me, the program director, if you have any questions about our program at rooneymm@cobleskill.edu.
